President Trump applies an increasingly bellicose stance toward the Iranian leader Hassan Rouhani as he rejects a global agreement to curb Iran's nuclear program. As Trump withdraws from the previous multilateral Iran nuclear deal, the U.S. plans to carry out its next implementation of stringent economic sanctions on Iran in late-2018. The Trump administration appears to apply the same strategy of draconian economic sanctions on North Korea to the Iran-U.S. nuclear negotiations. Rouhani consequently threatens to disrupt global oil shipments through the Strait of Hormuz, which serves as a strategic waterway for oil exports from the middle east.

Numerous stock market experts and pundits point out that the world would witness a sharp spike in oil prices toward $90-$100 per barrel if Iran decides to shut down the trade route. As one of the Top 5 oil supply countries, Iran may adversely affect the global energy transmission and deployment. An oil price spike often translates into higher costs of both consumption and production.

Higher inflation then induces central banks to raise interest rates to better balance the inexorable trade-off between price stability and employment. From a pragmatic perspective, the resultant energy price increases render international monetary policies less effective due to greater cost gyrations.
